Madrid

Our city tour of Madrid was conducted in the morning, but it was not easy to photograph buildings and momuments in the strong morning sun! We made several stops ~ the wonderful Don Quixote monument was our first ~ and although I tried, my vantage point was not the best for this picture. We were all amazed and impressed by Madrid's so very modern architecture ~ and the bullfighters' monument was a special place, too. A visit to the Prado Museum of Art was a highlight, but of course photography was not permitted inside! Madrid is a handsome city and one in which anyone could easily spend a lot of time just walking about and admiring everything.
